New York State Traumatic Brain Injury Services Coordinating Council: Meeting Annoucement

As the Chair of the State of New York Traumatic Brain Injury Services Coordinating Council, I am pleased to provide information and the agenda for our next meeting scheduled for Wednesday, December 12, 2007 at 10:00 AM at the offices of the New York State Department of Health located at 161 Delaware Avenue, Delmar, New York.

The agenda for this meeting is as follows:

  • Report and update on the TBI Waiver Program
  • New York State SPARCS Date Discussion regarding traumatic brain injury data collected by the Health Department
  • Subcommittee Structure and Future Direction Discussions
  • Public Comment Period

The Council was created by the New York State Legislature and is charged with recommending to the department of health long range objectives, goals and priorities concerning traumatic brain injury.  It is also charged with providing advice on the planning, coordination and development of needed traumatic brain injury services to the residents of New York State.

As the new chair of this council, I have carefully examined the past direction of the council and the progress that it has made in fulfilling its legislative mandate.  After discussions at our last meeting, I have created several new committees to be announced at the meeting.  In addition to membership by council members, I have also invited additional participation by individuals with demonstrated knowledge and expertise in traumatic brain injury to assist in evaluating TBI services in New York State.  I am hopeful that the newly formed committees will address the many needs of New York residents who have sustained a traumatic brain injury as well as the needs of their family members.

I welcome your participating at the next scheduled council meeting.
